Between the ages of 2-5 kids learn at a greater rate, they are sponges soaking up everything. And as we all know books are becoming more scarce, we have gone into the digital world. Books give visual, touch, and listening skills.
During this age group take a few minutes and sit down with a child and read to him/her. Reading builds relationships between adult and child, it also bring you closer together. It teaches basic speech skills such as word recognition and pronunciation. Another benefit of reading is basic knowledge of reading left to right. It enforces better communication and more logical thinking.
Reading exposes children to new experiences and enhanced concentration. The knowledge they receive from reading is priceless. Reading will give children a better understanding for other learning experiences like math, science and communicating with others.
